Congratulations on a Great Poster Session, Seniors!

Sociology and Anthropology Department seniors conducted a poster session this past Wednesday, April 30th, to present their senior thesis research projects. The session was well attended, and showcased many thought provoking studies spanning a wide variety of topics and methodological approaches. Here are a handful of photos that Andrew Gardner and I took of the event, along with a list of all the project titles — we’re sorry we weren’t able to get shots of everyone. Congratulations again, seniors, we’re proud of you!IMG_4848 IMG_4865IMG_4845IMG_4859IMG_4853
